"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Bill OReally is not conservative. Sexual harassment is not a conservative value.

FOX has always been top heavy with NY values. It seems to be the 1 place Geraldo Rivera can't get fired from.

great point

Even those who were once conservative lose it over time living in that east coast media bubble. At best, conservatism becomes a role they play for money but they don't live it because it makes them an outsider among their friends and colleagues.

I can see the same thing inside my own family. We all grew up in a tiny rural town with few liberal influences. Of my aunts and uncles who went off to places like Minneapolis, Kalamazoo, and Ann Arbor, all became predictably liberal. My parents remained in our hometown and I lived there till I was in my mid 30s when I moved to the even smaller town I live in now. 1 sister still lives in our hometown and is an active member of our church. The other sister has lived in Livonia for years and is predictably liberal. My dad's side of the family are rural conservatives as are my stepmother's family and my stepsisters.

I would love to build my own flyover country internet media empire.

Most of my field reporters would be a mix of truly rural people, people who live in small cities of under 50,000 people, and reliable freelancers. The massive infrastructure for live field reporting is no longer needed with the availability cable internet and wifi in all but the most remote locations.

I would also have a half dozen regionally located big city newsrooms so people could choose their news feed. Those big city studios could do their regionally based fluff stories, reports from around the region and a few of the big national stories. The rest of the day those regional big city studios would broadcast a mix of regional and national news all day. The crawler on the bottom of the screen would tell what the other regions are reporting at the moment and a user could click and go to that story.

I also wouldn't have opinion shows like Hannity's or O'Reilly's. Instead I would give each regional station an hour of point/counterpoint banter on their regional issues and they could join other point/counterpoint discussions on big national issues "via satellite".

Basically force the media to remain in touch with flyover country people.

That media bubble is a corrupting influence, just like 'Beltway Fever', and strongly related.

Do you know about One America News Network?  They're on DirecTV on channel 347, and elsewhere here:

Again, we hear from those who did not vote for the right to life which the GOP once again stood for. Trump won and that value is stood up for. You turned your back on the most innocent, the unborn.  Touche.
